Scandal's Nobody Likes Babies aired February 7, and ended with Olivia, the "fixer"

MY SCRIPT

 

During those months, Olivia has become concerned about her drinking and asks Huck to take her to an AA meeting.   As she sobers up and starts thinking more clearly, she begins to see how she needs to be fixed herself, from the inside out, if she is to continue to help fixing others.

 

NEW CHARACTER

 

Alika is an elder, an African-American woman who has long sobriety and good recovery in AA. In the outside world Alika is a political activist.   She is played by Cicely Tyson.
